#300821 Subzero 632 Icemaker

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 12 August 2014 - 09:26 AM

You may have the Midsouth ice maker in your freezer.  You can tell by removing the front cover off the ice maker-- if you see a large and small gear pair, that's the Midsouth design.  Manually start the harvest on these by using a screwdriver to turn the smaller gear CCW until it takes off on its own.  

 

More details in the service manual:  Sub Zero 600 Series Prior to Serial #1810000

#300632 maytag neptune mah6700aww 3E code

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 09 August 2014 - 08:49 AM

This is a well-known problem and there's a tech bulletin on it.

The parts changing monkey you hired was feeding you a royal line of BS-- not only are parts still being made for this machine, the control board is most likely NOT the problem.

Check the connections to the motor. If the connections are goodntight and the wires aren't broken, then replace the motor Part number: AP4044351

Part number: AP4044351

#300605 Dacor SGM304S -- intermittent ignition

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 08 August 2014 - 06:52 PM

 

The cooktop is not absolutely level.  It is bowed a little bit.  Could a bowed cooktop be interfering with the sparking? All of the burners are flat and level on the surface of the top. 

 

No.  The problem is most likely either a reverse polarity outlet or one of the burner switches is bad.  I'd replace all the burner switches, especially given that there is a pattern of boil-over/sloppy behavior going on in this kitchen.  




#300536 Kenmore SxS 10656544400 Freezer cold, Ref side not cold

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 07 August 2014 - 06:58 PM

Had this exact problem on this exact model the other day.  Problem turned out to be eggplant.  Yep, eggplants still in the plastic grocery bag on the shelf above the crispers where the return air vent is.  The plastic bag was shoved against the return vent so that when the doors where closed, no air could enter the FF compartment through the damper.  Result:  good freezer temps but warm FF compartment.  Instructed customer on proper loading and respecting the location of the return air vent.  $578.37 later, problem solved!  (Hey, personal tutoring and edumucation ain't cheap-- just ax some of my overedumucated but utterly helpless customers who are in their 40's and will still be paying off their student loans well into their 90's).

#300493 Whirlpool Side By Side Refrigerator model #GC5SHEXNS04

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 07 August 2014 - 09:05 AM

 Said it wasn't made anymore.

 

I think he may have been referring to the main control board, not the inverter control board.  The main control board is what you need and it is NLA Part number: W10219463

Part number: W10219463

 

 I found it on Sears Parts Direct. 

 

 

 

Your second mistake:  buying parts from Sears instead of through this site.  Had you bought the board here, you could have returned it for a refund when you realized it didn't fix the problem.

1. freezer frozen, (-32F) fridge warmish (55F)

 

 

This has to be a measurement error-- a properly functioning evaporator coil only gets down to about -15F.  There's about a 15 degree temperature split between the coil temp and air temp so you're looking at about 0F air temp in a properly functioning freezer.  Now add the fact that you saw the coil packed in frost and there's no way you could anything close to 0F air temp.  

 

Unless you meant +32F?  That I would believe (when considering instrument accuracy).  




#300426 Kenmore Front Load Washer HE 3T Model 110.43902203 Door Lock Problem!

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man on 05 August 2014 - 09:45 PM

Just like the tweak with the MI3 wire harness connector that you did for the F11 problem, apply the same technique to the door lock wire harness connector, especially where it connects to the CCU.
